GPW: The Ramona Apartments

GPW: The Ramona Apartments

The Ramona’s roof holds both a 30kWh photovoltaic array and 64 solar hot water panels over the ecoroof, receiving the City of Portland’s Ecoroof Incentive which funded $5/sf. Two different soil types were installed, each 3.5” deep, and 26 species of potted succulents and grasses were planted. The City of Portland provided flumes at two of the roof drains and will monitor the amount of stormwater released to the storm system. In the summer, the soil and plants are expected to keep the surface of the roof cooler and reduce the build-up of heat in the attic space and improve PV panel efficiency. Low irrigation rates will be tested on different zones by the City because it’s anticipated that the solar arrays will provide enough shade for the plants to sustain themselves.
